Hello world!

Welcome. My name is Oliver Kennedy, and starting this Fall, I'll be junior faculty at UB.  I'm starting this blog to give people a bit of an idea of the stuff I'm working on.  My goal is to keep things relatively short.  I'm not sure exactly what I'll be posting here, but for general posts I'll be keeping the language at a level that's understandable by most people (not just those in CS). So, without further ado, let me say hello again, and welcome you to The Cutting Edge. (Oh, and why the name?  I like swords, and I like tech)
